Marc-Edouard Vlasic (lower-body) won't play in Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

He suffered the injury in a win over the Flyers on Sunday. "I'm not playing tonight and then I'm getting evaluated tomorrow," said Vlasic. "So, talk to the doctors, get re-evaluated and go from there. We have two days off until we play again. Hopefully that helps."

Scott Hannan was cut under the eye following a hit from Flyers forward Nick Cousins.

He left Saturday’s game at 7:23 of the third period and didn’t return. San Jose played a majority of the game without Marc-Eduoard Vlasic after he left injured, so they spent a good portion with only four defenseman. He played 17:12 on Saturday with two penalty minutes. Hannan is questionable for Sunday's game.

Alex Stalock was in net as the San Jose Sharks notched a 3-2 shootout win against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 27-year-old was expected to push Antti Niemi or starts, but that hasn't really happened, as he's had a mediocre season: 7-7-1 with a .902 save percentage and 2.60 GAA.
Mar 28 - 4:48 PM

Do not be surprised if the San Jose Sharks let coach Todd McLellan go at the end of the season.

There were rumors last season after the Sharks blew a 3-0 lead in the first round of the playoffs to Los Angeles that his future was in peril but the Sharks brought him back for another season. Now it appears that San Jose will not make a post-season appearance so McLellan could be shown the door shortly after the season ends on April 11.

Matt Nieto has four goals and seven points in his last 10 games.

Mirco Mueller sustained a left hand/wrist injury as a result of a shot he blocked on Thursday.
